Bottle shared by Jack, thanks! Pours a clear deep brown with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some red fruits and dark grains with oak and a hint of sweetness backing. Flavor has sweet dark grains and red fruits with some oak and a bit of bread underlying.

Bottle directly from Heater Allen. Deep chestnut pour with a prominent tan head. Oaky nose. Surprising red fruit accents Mellow caramel and roasted grain. Surprising fruit character persists. Flavors of red berry, raisin cake. Pillowy, creamy mouthfeel. Mild oxidization. Not sure that the strong fruit was intended, but it sort of works.

Bomber from De Garde tasting room. Aroma is toasty, roasty, minerally. Pours dark brown with amber tints and a collapsing off-white head. Taste is much more bitter than traditional German examples, but it does have an offsetting maltiness; it’s fairly grainy, as well. This being De Garde, I thought there might be some wild yeast or microflora to make things interesting. Not so, at least as far as I can tell. It just seems like a plain old doppelbock with a bit more bitterness to distinguish it from more traditional examples. It does taste good, but I was really hoping for a wild yeast/microflora-spiked doppelbock here.
